 photo-eye Magazine Reviews

This week in photo-eye Magazine:

"Viviane Sassen's Flamboya brings together photographs from her recent visits to Africa. Though predominantly raised in the Netherlands, from the ages of two to five Sassen lived in a Kenyan village with her father, a doctor who worked at a neighboring polio clinic. The memories from the photographer's early childhood are, as Edo Dijksterhuis describes in the book's essay, "tinged with black.""—from Shane Lavalette's review of Viviane Sassen's Flamboya

"On the surface, the subjects of Hisashi Shimizu's book Portraits of Silence are soldiers who perished during the Iraq conflict, indirect portraits developed from the perspective of the soldier's parents. But Portraits of Silence is also about the desire to maintain the memory of a beloved, and the fight to keep a tangible presence of who they were while dealing with the grief of their loss."—from Douglas Stockdale's review of Hisashi Shimizu's Portraits of Silence

"For the last several years, Light has been producing mammoth-scaled, very limited edition book-objects from his series of aerial photographs. These books have been widely exhibited to critical acclaim, and the series now extends to roughly eight such realizations, including books on Los Angeles (Day and Night), Phoenix, Sun City, Rancho San Pedro, and Mono Lake. This new publication is the first in a series from Radius Books that will translate Light's impressive and ambitious projects into the trade book format." —the publisher READ MORE

 365 A Book A Day
Greater Atlanta by Mark Steinmetz.
"Mark Steinmetz completes his powerful and moving trilogy, "South", with Greater Atlanta. Photographing in Atlanta and its outlying regions, Steinmetz provides his testimony on contemporary American civilization."

Shooting Glastonbury by Venetia Dearden.
"Venetia Dearden has been documenting the people of Glastonbury Festival since 2004. Glastonbury Festival is the largest performing arts festival in the world situated in the Vale of Avalon, UK."

Finding Frida Kahlo by Barbara Levine with Stephen Jaycox.
"It seemed inconceivable that after decades of exhibitions, auctions, books, and movies, unpublished Frida Kahlo artwork could still be found anywhere, much less a shop in a converted textile factory."

The Map As Art by Katharine Harmon.
"Maps can be simple tools, comfortable in their familiar form. Or they can lead to different destinations: places turned upside down or inside out, territories riddled with marks understood only by their maker, realms connected more to the interior mind than to the exterior world."

Photowisdom by Lewis Blackwell.
"Through the extraordinary images and insights of the world's master photographers, Photowisdom explores the richness of contemporary photographic proactive."

Surfaces and Depths by Thomas Ruff.
"Surfaces and Depths is a representative selection of Thomas Ruff's works, over a period that already spans about 25 years, with projects ranging from portraits and interiors to telescope and space probe pictures and "nightsight" photography."

Shooting Off My Mouth Spitting Into the Mirror by Eugenia Parry.
"Shooting Off My Mouth Spitting Into the Mirror inaugurates a new direction in photography and photography writing, as author Eugenia Parry offers an interpretation of the work of Lisette Model (1901-1983) through a meta-fictional soliloquy by the artist."
